In the Shadow of the Buddha - Tibetan Nuns

The world of Buddhist nuns is much less well known than that of male monks. In this moving documentary of Tibetan Buddhist nuns in northern India documentary filmmaker Heather Kessinger takes us into this seldom seen world. She finds evidence of a male dominated patriarchal culture which has seen much of their work and devotion marginalised and oppressed but the female spirit emerges strong and emboldened with love.
